Saint Cyprien Plage - a beach resort

As the name implies, St Cyprien Plage is the beach resort part of the town of St Cyprien (St Cyprien Property Guide), which lies in the deep south of France on the Mediterranean coast near Spain. The resort is both a part of, and distinct from, St Cyprien village, being the modern purpose-built part of the commune. (The population in this guide includes St Cyprien village.)

Ancient and modern

The area is a wonderful blend of Med and mountains, of ancient and modern. The surroundings incorporate a beautiful marina, vineyards, olive groves, quaint Catalan fishing villages, cherry trees and all the fun and bustle of the modern seaside resorts, so there truly is something for all tastes here.

Smart and sassy

St Cyprien Plage is both smart and sassy. Whilst being full of things to do, with bars, restaurants, shops and entertainment, St Cyprien Plage is no Blackpool with sunshine. This is a resort which does "Class" with a capital C. Forming the tourism focused part of the St Cyprien commune, St Cyprien Plage has developed its own identity and is discernibly Catalan as well as French. Find the Catalan influences in the music and the food, the accents of the locals, and sometimes even in the language.

Amenities on offer

Shopping and dining are no problem here, and the resort supports plenty of businesses and offers pretty much everything you will need. There is a small supermarket here, as well as bakers, butchers, greengrocers and newsagents.

Perfect beaches

The long, safe sandy beaches of the resort are about as close to perfect as it gets. Lapped by the warm, blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the seaside here is a constant pleasure, whether in the hectic heat of summer or in the peace of a windswept winter's day. Families are well catered for in St Cyprien Plage, and children will be welcomed in the restaurants and cafés which abound in the town and on the waterfront.

Lively in season

There is a lively atmosphere in the resort, with plenty of entertainments laid on in the summer season. Market days are on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. As it is a beach resort, expect the winter to be quiet in comparison, with some of the tourist orientated businesses closing in the off season. This can be a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the summer, and some full-time residents look forward to the complete change of atmosphere that comes with the different times of year.

Dreamy marina

The marina, which, aside from the beaches, is the focal point of the resort, is a never ending source of fascination. The colour and atmosphere create a real buzz, and this area is one of the best places to dine, relax and revel in a Mediterranean dream. There is always lots going on near the marina, and you will find plenty of bars, cafés and seafood sellers in this part of town. St Cyprien Plage is also a real life fishing port, and the catch of the day is a delicious treat... it is as fresh as it gets!

Sports and leisure

Clearly, a seaside resort such as this will offer lots of sea and beach based activities, and if this is what you are hoping to find in St Cyprien Plage you will not be disappointed. The sea in this area is noted for its warmth and clarity, so scuba diving (plongée) is especially popular, as is snorkelling. There are horse-riding stables nearby, a very good golf course a short way inland, and the walking is recommended not just as an activity, but as a wonderful way to discover this beautiful part of France.

Things to see, places to go...

St Cyprien Plage is located near Spain, near the Pyrénéan Mountains and also near the historical Cathar regions of southern France, so there is a huge and diverse choice of places to go and things to see on days out.

How to get there

It isn't difficult to get to St Cyprien Plage from the UK. Nearby Perpignan has an airport with flights with both budget airline Ryanair as well as flybe. Carcassonne and Girona are also within reach, both being served by Ryanair, so there is plenty of choice when it comes to airlines and departure airports. The TGV runs to Perpignan too, and drivers can take the A9 auto route then turn off onto the coast road.

Property prices and availability in and around St Cyprien Plage

Property in St Cyprien Plage is more expensive than inland property, of course, as is always the case with Mediterranean properties, but there are lots of opportunities to purchase very reasonably priced apartments here. Fancy stepping right out of your one or two-bedroom property onto the beach? For under 100,000 Euros you can make this dream come true in St Cyprien Plage. And don't forget it is also an excellent opportunity to own a property in one of the most beautiful and desirable parts of the French Mediterranean without paying Riviera prices.
